NP3 Fastigheter AB (publ) (”NP3” or the ”Company”) explores the conditions for carrying out a directed issue of approximately 7 million preference shares (the ”Share issue”) to Swedish and international professional and institutional investors through an accelerated book building procedure and has appointed ABG Sundal Collier AB and Swedbank AB (publ) as Joint Bookrunners in connection with the Share issue.
The subscription price and final number of new preference shares will be determined by way of an accelerated book building procedure, which will commence immediately after publication of this announcement. The preference shares in the Share issue will be offered to Swedish and international professional and institutional investors, deviating from the pre-emptive rights of existing shareholders. The Company has received indications of interest for participating in the Share issue from several professional and institutional investors, including among others the Company’s largest shareholder Poularde AB in which company the board members Lars Göran Bäckvall and Mia Bäckvall Juhlin have ownership interests.
NP3 intends to use the proceeds from the Share issue to strengthen the financial readiness for future business opportunities and to finance previously communicated property acquisitions.
The Share issue is subject to a resolution by the board of directors of NP3, pursuant to the authorisation granted by the annual general meeting on 4 May 2021. The Company will publish the results of the Share issue in a press release when the book building procedure is finished, which, alongside pricing and allocations, is expected to occur before trading starts on Nasdaq Stockholm at 09:00 a.m. CEST on 12 May 2021. The book building procedure may, at the discretion of the Company, close earlier or later or may be cancelled at any time.
ABG Sundal Collier AB and Swedbank AB (publ) are Joint Bookrunners in connection with the Share issue. Hannes Snellman Attorneys Ltd is legal advisor to the Company in connection with the Share issue.
